Personal Quote:

My home life was tough," Peirce said. "It was an oversexualized and violent house. I don't say that like, Wah, wah, feel bad for me. I say it as an adult who is an artist who draws from that stuff...I think girls need to break up with their mothers. See more »


Her younger half-brother, Brett, enlisted in the Army at 18 and served in Iraq. It prompted her to develop and direct the 2008 military drama Stop-Loss (2008). See more »
